Building Owners

Do you know who to trust when it comes to your roofs?

It’s been years since your buildings’ roofs have been examined. You know that some of them are starting to fail and that it’s time to call in an expert. Obtaining multiple quotes is a good idea, but how do you know you’re getting an honest quote? You know some of your roofs aren’t as bad as others, but the contractors you called are telling you to replace them all.

Alliance is the roof expert for insurance professionals.

Where Do You Get Help?

With so much information being thrown at you from multiple directions, you don’t know who to trust or what needs to be done with your roof.

Multiple Roofing Systems

Owning multiple buildings means multiple roofing systems to worry about. Knowing which roofs need attention now and which ones can be prioritized for a later date is challenging.

Independent Roofing Information

Everyone you talk to about your roofs say they need to be replaced right now, but you know those are the same people who benefit from you purchasing new roofing systems.

Properly Installed Roofing Systems

Roofing systems are not only complicated, but they can be expensive. Spending money on a system that’s not installed properly wastes time and money.

Custom Roof Management Program

Even a new, accurately installed roofing system can fail, if it isn’t properly maintained and managed. You need the know-how and time to manage your roof assets.

Poorly Installed Roofing Systems Lead to More Building Issues

Not all roofing systems are the same.

Hiring the first contractor you speak to won’t necessarily lead to a proper roof installation. Not all roofing systems are the same and they require specialized installation methods.

Finding the right contractor.

Hiring the first contractor who offers you what looks like a good deal, could lead to an improperly installed roofing system. And, since the contractor didn’t install the right system, you end up needing to replace the roof again sooner than expected, which puts a huge strain on your budget.

Prioritizing roofing needs.

As someone who owns multiple buildings, you have multiple roofs to consider. Those roofs aren’t all going to be in the exact same condition. You need an independent expert who can help you prioritize which roofs need to be replaced now, which ones require repair work, and which ones can be addressed later.

Alliance Consulting and Testing

Understands Your Roofing System

At Alliance Consulting and Testing, we don’t sell roofing materials or systems. Instead, we offer our independent expertise to help building owners make informed decisions about their roofs. When we climb on a roof, we provide honest, independent information and opinions about what we find. If the roof needs immediate repairs or replacement services, we’ll help you find the right contractor, write the specifications for the installation or repair, and perform quality assurance inspections during the work. If the roof doesn’t need immediate work or if it’s repaired or replaced, we’ll set up a roof asset management program to monitor your roof’s condition.

Understanding every roofing system allows Alliance Consulting and Testing to offer independent information you can use to hire the right contractor and maintain your roof.
